Question society’s values. If you think the problem is pot heads, cigarette smokers, lgbt community, people on ebt, or protesters, then you have truly been brainwashed. Have fun living the way other people tell you to.
Tbh you don’t really have the right to judge what somebody else is putting in their body. Poor people crave soda and get their periods and have kids who want Cheetos sometimes too. Nobody is going through your grocery cart with a fine-toothed comb. Trust me, that alone is privilege. Carefully selecting the least judgmental looking cashier at a grocery store is a real life thing people deal with. I promise.
To me, this is the same thing as saying I can’t buy something nice when I finally catch a tiny break in life. JUST BECAUSE WE’RE POOR DOESN’T MEAN WE DON’T WANT STUFF TOO. There is nothing worse than saving up for something you really want for a long time and then getting judged for it. I remember how much shit I got on here for posting about owning a MacBook (which was GIVEN to me, but I didn’t specify that because it’s clearly nobody’s business) and anyway it was just so discouraging and annoying. Like we don’t deserve to have nice things. Whatever
I’ve been on SNAP before and had to apply for it again. If my monthly visitor rolls around, damn fucking right I’m going to buy chips and soda. I need salt and caffeine. I’m a college student. Excuse me for buying things I literally grew up eating and are comfort foods to me. I also buy chicken and hot dogs and french toast sticks, so it’s not like all of it is “junk”. Do you seriously think we hop around with $100 worth of chips??? Kid, that ain’t gonna last you two weeks. You buy enough hot dogs that you know will get you through a month or so, or buy canned/non-perishables that you know will keep longer. I wasn’t aware I wasn’t allowed to have a coke with my lemon-peppered chicken that I cooked from scratch because being poor made me learn how to make a lot of shit and improvise - so I know how to cook. Sorry that my poverty doesn’t fit your expectations. Fuck off.
as a single person living on food stamps with low spoons and anxiety around cooking junk food is the best way to feed myself and not run out of food stamps and goddamn right I will buy it with my food stamps and look the clerk in the fucking eye when I do
People are stupid. Use foodstamps for whatever you need/want, the average tax payer puts about $87 to food stamps while putting over $800 a year towards corporate subsidies. I don’t feel bad when I use them to buy “junk-food” or other things. Fuck the government, if they can fraud me, I can certainly work around the system with a clear conscience.
I love tumblr a lot! I can post anything here and completely be myself =) No parents or countless bigots from high school! So I’m going to post random facts about me that I would never post anywhere else lol.
For starters, as you all know by now, I’m Pan-Sexual, meaning I can have a physical and romantic attraction to anyone I find attractive, whether they be male, female, non-binary. Or as some say, I can be attracted to someone regardless of their gender. That being said, I have a crush on one of my best friends. He is tall, cute, kind, loving, thoughtful, and talented. I don’t know for sure how to handle whats going on though, he has a girlfriend, but has clearly stated before that he is polygamous and I’m almost certain he has said that he was pan-sexual as well.
Moving on, I’m a stoner. I 100% believe in weed! Its NOT a
drug. I particularly like Sativa strains. Big fan of Blue Dream, Big Sur, and Girl Scout Cookies. Wake n’ Bake, 420 lol XD I enjoy rolling j’s, I like eating it too. It is just an amazing thing. It provides pain relief, legitimately too, I have serious back issues. Almost all the rumors about it are false.
I am an activist. I have very strong feelings towards our government and the 1%. I also believe in revenge which is an issue too, because with how much the very few greedy people have done to our country, is beyond anything we can do back to them. I believe that if they all decayed alive for hours in the most gruesome way imaginable, that they would have only paid off 35% of their debt. I’m sorry if that sounds sick and twisted, but these people dump chemical waste to save money while risking an entire community getting cancer. They rig elections for their benefit, and ultimately they negatively impact my life, your life, almost everyone’s lives for money. Which I believe is sick and twisted. They also poison our food, because its cheaper to use chemicals and fillers than actual food, and for some reason, groceries are still expensive. I hope the greedy wall st pigs burn alive.
I feel like most people think I’m crazy. I’m not a sheep though. I’m not going to live a certain way because it appeases to their favorite book, written over 2000 years ago or because it fuels a greater, greedy agenda. Its my life and I can either use it to live for myself, or I can use it to live for someone else’s profits. I choose me, even if they come out to get me or if the system defeats me, I’d be happy dying at 21 knowing that I’ve lived 100 times more then they wanted me too.
I 100% agree with this. NO ONE LIKES YOU 1%!!!! You’re all a bunch of selfish, greedy, narcissistic-assholes! LIke for real, if 100 people existed only, and they all hated me, I’d do something to change it.
Just now and many times before, he gives more reason to think he’s interested, but not enough to say anything to him… This is driving me crazy. Maybe I should just say it and get it over with.
